Be Our Guest!

Loken’s Sawmill Inn & Suites is located in the heart of Southeast Minnesota’s Bluff Country. The Inn was newly constructed in 2005 on the site of Grandpa’s sawmill and is owned and operated by us (John and Eileen), along with our kids Elizabeth and James. Bicycle enthusiasts will find the Root River State Trail at our back door. The Houston Nature Center is the beginning of the 42-mile trail. Enjoy spectacular scenery while biking, hiking, cross-country skiing, or in-line skating starting right here. For snowmobilers, there are many miles of groomed snowmobile trails.

In our wooded hills, along the Southeast Minnesota Scenic Byway (Highway 16), wildlife abounds. Hunters will find an abundance of small and large game including grouse, pheasants, turkeys and deer. Fishermen will find bountiful trout streams nearby in our hills. We’re about twenty minutes away from the Mississippi River. Year ’round, bird watchers and naturalists will enjoy the beautiful scenery of our bluff country.

Come experience it for yourself!
